IN THIS INSPIRING BOOK, entrepreneur, educator, and creativity expert, Emily Greene, shows us how the disruption of school during the pandemic is our watershed moment to reinvent a better way to learn.
The coronavirus pandemic brought our lives to a halt, daily routines were upended, and school changed overnight. While pandemic-era learning is exposing the glaring deficiencies in our school systems, Greene lays out an uplifting, achievable way for parents, caregivers, and educators to help children rediscover the joy of learning.
She shares new research, combined with personal stories, tips, and activities, to help lighten the load that parents and children feel as we navigate this unprecedented disruption of school. She guides us through the Seven Wonders of Learning―Unlearning, Free Time, Curiosity, Making, Creativity, Individuality, and Joy―offering practical strategies to help bring back balance and optimism as we reimagine school.
We walk away uplifted, with a new perspective on how to use this unexpected disruption of our children's schooling to nurture their hearts, souls, and natural curiosities. We carry forward a can-do sense of urgency to help our children come away from this difficult period with new insight, strength, and a reclaimed joy of learning.
